Well well well...the saga of Joe Mixon gets a little more intriguing with this, doesn't it?

First, there was an announcement that Cal was in Mixon's final five - and according to the interview he gave,actually the leader.

Then it was an appearance at the team's scrimmage last Saturday, where he got an up close look at the offense and appeared to like what he saw.

And now, there's this news - Mixon has canceled his official visit to the Texas A&M-Alabama game. Taking its place is a date Cal fans should be very familiar with at this point: September 14th...against Ohio State. So, if that game wasn't already huge enough, it gets huger.

The five star back is a long way off from making a decision, but all signs point to Cal being very firmly in the Mix.
